No arguments here. But, where is our Blue-ray, remixed and remastered 5.1 sound, director's cut, or an unedited version with deleted scenes and bonus features like interviews with Phil, Bob, and Bill of this show? I am sure Monte would do it for a fair price. Come on Rhino or who ever is holding the goods. Give the fans what they want, and that is more of 1972, but this time with the visual bonus to go with it. Peace

lol... and we have numerous "other" controversies:

LL admins are deleting posts and threads about what some of the older Tapers are thinking (Bad Bob's "open letter to LL", and a subsequent follow-up thread were removed yesterday.). Imo, these discussions are important to have.

The IA admins here are blowing away the best News Rooms in the 21st century, even though we have so much Corporate Media consolidation. The Archive's 20-channel TV Broadcast ingest, search, and repurposing system blows away anything CNN is doing (or has ever done). Brewster and Prelinger just launched a new "Understanding 9/11" Collection several days ago.

Monte is busted for sharing tapes and provoking thought!

Veneta (Ashley version), Harding Theatre (7 Nov 71), and Strand Lyceum (26 May 72) are the top-three shows in my rotation over these past months. I often listen to my tapes of Dark Star from 10 June 73. The sound quality from my AUD is amazing.

More "GD [missing] video controversy" from 1972 (Europe) is found in this thread.

The "most unusual controversy" I am seeing regards the expensive and new GD Archive at UCSC. Nov 5, 2011 is an exclusive sneak-peek into the riches of the Grateful Dead Archive. Join Archivist Nicholas Meriwether and fellow Deadheads at a special, one night only exhibit marking the public debut of the Grateful Dead Archive at UCSC. Please visit events.ucsc.edu/attics for more information.
My limited observations about Mr. Meriwether and the GD Archives at UCSC Santa Cruz include the fact that Tapers, Taping, and Tapes are NOT (have yet to be) discussed or mentioned there, thus far. How could this possibly be true? (Am I wrong?)
